    Awesome. Just got to get Heyward locked up next offseason and we'll be sitting pretty for a while.

    The Braves have agreed to a seven-year extension with shortstop Andrelton Simmons, the club announced today via press release. Simmons will receive a $58MM guarantee, tweets Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports.

    Simmons, 24, will now be under contract with Atlanta through the 2020 season. The deal covers all of his arb-eligible years and includes two seasons of free agent eligibility. With just 1.125 years of service heading into 2014, Simmons was a possible (but by no means certain) Super Two player for 2015.

    And another one falls into place. 7/58 is a good deal for Simmons. Considering he hasn't shown a ton of offense he must really love this deal. I said something like 6/50 a few days ago is what I would offer him.

    I do think this deal isn't as team friendly as we would have hoped for, but it falls in line with the young guys staying here. I am happy for Simba because I love him as a player. He is so fun to watch out there. His bat should begin to improve as well and if it does watch out.

    When inflation continues to hit baseball this is going to be the best contract out there in two years

    Yes he has awesome plate coverage and when he swings it generally means contact of some sort. I question his approach sometimes because he goes up there hacking a lot of the time and doesn't see enough pitches. The signs point to him slowing it down and becoming a decent hitter though. So, I am not worried about him all that much.

    Like you said in a couple seasons this contract can look really good and I think it will.

    Kudos to Wren on this one.

    What I like most about Simmons is that in clutch situations he slows down and has better at-bats and usually comes through with big hits. How many game winning hits has he already had in his short career? A lot. That screams someone who will eventually become a very good hitter.

    Thank god the offseason didn't end with Gamel and Doumit being the signings.

    And another thing, February is the month of love, and it's time to give another shout out to Frank Wren. He really wants to do something special with this core. Offer Heyward something in between Android and Freeman and go with it.

    Definitely a bargain. He's the guy I really wanted to lock up before he breaks out offensively. We saved a lot of money getting it done this year.

    Now time to get Minor locked up.

    Pretty good deal. He will be making 13 and 15 million in his two free agency years. Compare that to the Andrus deal last spring who is going to be topping out at 15 million per year with his deal and Simmons is 1) a better player and 2) signed his after contracts started inflating. If we had waited a year or two those free agency years would of been close to 20 million imo.
